Russia Must Be Ready for Space, Cyber Wars, Says Military Chief


Russia must be ready for wars in space and in networks, Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Nikolai Makarov said on Saturday.

“As you see, warfare center has moved to aerospace and information spheres, including cyber security, from traditional war theatres on land and sea. Concepts of network-centric war have made great progress,” Makarov told an Academy of Military Sciences meeting. “We appraise how … this question is being solved in Western leading countries.”

Makarov also said that an initial period of war had begun to exert a decisive influence on its course and outcome so modern wars became more short-timed.

The chief added that hi-tech technologies force to cut number of soldiers for higher effectiveness of troops’ actions.
